This guy keeps calling me asking for this guy named Ashton Bennet. I've told him over 20 times that I'm not him, and he just calls back immediately. I even told him I'm under 18 and I don't have a mortgage and he started arguing with me saying that I'm really 35. I don't think this guy is dangerous, so I just think I should either A. just scare him and tell him I'm giving his number to the police (and not really do it) B. make a prank out of it.

Wait, what if I staged a police investigation. Have a friend be in the back asking information and then I ask the guy and then my friend will say in the background "Ok we'll send a car over" or something like that?

I used to do that or if I was in my car I would blast music really loud and place the phone over a speaker. That or I would immediately start screaming profanity into the phone when they asked for William whoever it was.

Either tell him you are practicing...when he asks "for what?", say "making a baby"...

or, tell you will be right back and just put the phone down and walk away...

If it was a carpet guy, I would have another response...

No. His voice it too deep to be anyone I know. I mean, it's like shaft deep. I don't know anyone with such a deep voice. And if he is, it doesn't matter, he's still harrassing me. If I hang up, he just calls right back. I got his number. If anyone wants it send me a PM.

great advice for responding to the typical telemarketer. they tend to dominate a conversation.


alternately, you could just let him get to the middle of his sales pitch and quietly put the phone down without telling him anything. i did that with one guy who repeatedly called.

the first time i used that technique on him, i came back into the room and could hear him rambling on after nearly 10 minutes. after another 10 minutes, the phone was making that funny noise to indicate there is no one at the other end.

he called back the next day and i did the same. he hung up before 10 minutes, and never called again.


arguing only increases the likelihood he'll continue to call.
allowing him to waste his time with no response from you will causes more frustration on his part.


btw, organizing retaliatory nuisance calls is against UG rules. don't do it.

my mate had a prob like this but not a sales person. just some random guy sending texts and calling him. one ime the guy called when i was there and i grabbed the phone and said is anyone there. he starts shouting so told him to **** off.

butyou should answer it but dont say anything. one thing my dad (cab driver) did to this guy who was phoning his number and saying that he would kill him/ new where he worked, was say to the guy if you want me come and get me. they didnt. but cos my dad saved the number on his phone when he was on the taxi rank at 2 in the morning he would phone the guy and the guy started begging him to stop it.
remember kids, you can't spell bass without ass

*69 his number or something. get his name, look him up, go to his house and put and flaming bag of shit on his doorstep. then run away giggling
#33
Look up some double glazing firm on the net and and find a page that's full of sales pitch, stop him mid sentence and ask him if he needs any windows fitting. Totaly ignore anything he says and read out the sales pitch, over and over again.

See how he likes it.

Or, take a crisp packet and russel it right up to the mouthpiece while saying, 'Oh, I'm going through a tunnel!' then hang up.

This is the best thing to do. Act like an angry psychopath, frequently switching between enrage shouting and creepy whispering. Say that you have caller idea and that you know here he's calling from. Then make a reference to a large gun collection you have.

OR just do what this guy does

Surely that's costing him money, he'll probably just give up after a while.

Do you have his phone number? If so, just pass it on to some telemarketing company and they will do the same back to him without costing you any money. Only do it if he keeps phoning you though, it's a bit out of order.
